New Report – ‘Lessons from History: Freedom, Aspiration and the New Curriculum’

Professor Robert Tombs claiming children find history ‘repetitive and boring’ on BBC this morning and in the Daily Mail yesterday. Good teachers are prevented from providing good history by the nature of the disjointed curriculum. I am with him when he says the school history curriculum lacks chronology and the vox pop lack of knowledge was dire. What did come over was that those who loved history had enthusiastic teachers – as one lady said ‘who lived it’. So well done Mrs Goodrich – who was my own inspirational teacher.

We can do this – help inspire the next generation.
